FORT MILL --
Fort Mill officials plan to offer the town managers position to the current Tega Cay city manager, Dennis Pieper.
The town council interviewed Pieper, according to a news release from Fort Mill issued Friday afternoon. Mayor Danny Funderburk has discussed possible contract terms with Pieper, and the Fort Mill council is expected to discuss the contract Monday.
"We don't have a contract in place," Funderburk said Friday afternoon. "Hopefully we'll be able to get that together and have something to look at for Monday's meeting."
Calls to Pieper for comment weren't immediately returned.
Pieper would replace David Hudspeth, who is scheduled to retire Feb. 2. No start date has been established for Pieper. Funderburk said that conversations with the candidate to join the town went "exceptionally well" and that he anticipates a smooth transition. Pieper's familiarity with the area was a positive, Funderburk said, in moving forward.
"I think that's the way everybody's looking at it," he said.
